Schulz is known amongst his fans as the unicorn slayer. Many EDM artists nowadays tend to fall back on light, upbeat melodies, nicknamed "unicorn melodies", but Schulz prefers to use square waves and pitch bends. After somebody tweeted, "Markus Schulz: the unicorn slayer of trance." Schulz retweeted it and the nickname caught on.

Personal life

After a relationship of more than 6 years, Schulz married Romanian singer Adina Butar on June 1, 2019 in Ibiza.
